Bear mountain was deceptive, slippery, and very cold! Although beautiful with magnificent views, Bear had a nasty false summit. The trail was unique with large flat rocks paired with steep, slippery areas. It was a chilly 36 degrees when we started the hike and the top felt even colder with high speed winds. It’s definitely not a trail to try to run down. Take your time and watch your step!
